HC Deb 10 April 1889 vol 335 cc182-3
MR. MUNDELLA (Sheffield, Brightside)

I must appeal to Her Majesty's Government that they will for the convenience of the House, and to save time in the debate which is coming on tomorrow on the question of the Sugar Bounties, give us the correspondence for which I have given notice to move? The correspondence which has already been published in the Blue Book is altogether trivial in character. As the right hon. Gentleman opposite has already given permission for the correspondence to be published, I must appeal to him to have it circulated and thus save a good deal of trouble and some acrimony perhaps.

*BARON H. DE WORMS (Liverpool, E. Toxteth)

I must respectfully decline to accede to the suggestion of the right hon. Gentleman, as the correspondence is not of an official character. As a matter of fact, it has been printed in pamphlet form by the gentleman to whom it was addressed, and circulated among Members of the House.


I have not seen it.

Motion made, That the House do now adjourn.


I wish to make an. explanation. A few minutes ago I objected to a pseudo-Liberal measure being brought forward by hon. Members sitting opposite, and I wish it to be distinctly understood that as long as I continue to be a Member of this House and such measures are brought forward by hon. Members opposite, I shall strenuously oppose them to the utmost of my power. When I made use of the words "a respectable Member on this side of the House," I merely spoke of the Liberal Members, and not of the traitors who sit on those Benches, and support the Party opposite.


The measure is backed by Sir B. Samuelson, Sir Charles Palmer, and Mr. Seale-Hayne, and others, who, I should think, do not come under the category which the hon. Member has just mentioned.


Order, order!
